Hi Fashionista Next Door readers! My name is Shea and I am the creator of Curves and Confidence which is my little contribution to the blogging world. I currently reside in Miami aka the Magic City which is known for its diverse culture and beautiful people. I am so excited to guest blog for Eboni whose blog I have been following forever!
So who besides me decided to implement a few style and shopping resolutions for the New Year, you can see mine here. While my list does not say anything about shopping less the fact of the matter is I need to remix my clothes more. I have a bad habit of running out and buying new clothes instead of trying to create new outfits with what I already own. After going back through my 2012 blog pictures I realized I have some awesome stuff that I haven’t worn in months!
One of my favorite purchases of 2012 was this polka dot midi skirt that didn’t get much wear. Since I haven’t worn this skirt in a while it only seemed right that I finally give pattern mixing a try. After many failed combinations I finally decided the only logical choice was a striped shirt. I loved the final outcome but was still a little unsure about my outfit as I walked into work. After a few reassuring compliments from my co-workers I can proudly check pattern mixing off my fashion to-do list. Oh and while these shoes are CUTE they hurt like heck. I felt like I was walking on stilts all day long but beauty is pain right?
Thank you Eboni for the guest blogging opportunity and thank you guys for reading! Don’t forget to stop by Curves and Confidence anytime, see you guys on the flip side =)
TFND: Shea, honey…now you know I’m all over those shoes! They are HOT.com, and I love the subtle pop of color they add to your otherwise muted color palette. It’s fun and sophisticated all at the same time! CUTE! YOu also remind me that I need to get a new oxford shirt. Anyway, thanks so much for holding down the fort for me…you rock!
